Student Registration

Create an Account

In the box on the righthand side of the screen titled "Create an Account," fill in your name and email address.  Even if you competed in a contest in a previous year, you still need to create a new account for this contest.

Register Your School and Teacher

When prompted, find your school and then select your teacher in the drop-down lists.

  • If you are homeschooled or do not see your school name as an option, email education@masshist.org for help.
  • If you do not see your teacher's name as an option, ask your teacher if they have registered on the website yet.  If the answer is yes and you still can't find them, email education@masshist.org for help.
  • If you are not working with a teacher, email education@masshist.org and they will set you up with an account. 

Set Up Project Entry

Individual Projects: If you are competing individually, click on "Create a Project" and follow the instructions.

Group Projects:

a. If you are the first person in your group to register, click on "Create a Project" and follow the instructions.  Once you are done, you will receive an email with a Team Key that you must send to your group members.  A Team Key will look like a long string of letters and numbers (Example: b64d6ed7-b151-4469-bec8-63dc2f041ea4).

b. If you are not the first person in your group to register, click on "Link/Join an Existing Group" and enter the Team Key you received from your team member (see above). 

Specific Project Instructions

Websites: You will see a place where you can enter your Weebly website key.  This will NOT lock out your website until the deadline--you can still edit it until the Website Lockout (Wednesday, February 20th 2019 by 11:59pm). Make sure your website is published at this time!

Papers: You will see a place where you can upload your paper document.  You can submit your paper now or later, and you can make changes to it and re-upload it up until the Paper Submission Deadline (Wednesday, February 20th 2019 by 11:59pm).  Note: you MUST upload your final draft of your paper by the deadline or you will not be fully registered!

Permissions and Waivers

Once you confirm your personal information and project entry, you will be taken to a page where you and your parents/guardians will respond to NHD permissions and waivers. Note: your parents or guardians MUST fill out this section with you.

Registration Fees

Each participating student has a registration fee of $12.*  You can choose to pay online or by check.  The deadline for registration payments is Friday, February 22nd.

IMPORTANT: Check to see whether your school pays for registration fees! 

If the school is paying: DO NOT CHOOSE THE "PAY ONLINE" option. Instead, select the option to "pay by check." This will create an invoice that your school can use to pay your fee.  Once you have selected this option, you are all set!

If the student is paying: You can either pay online with a debit or credit card, or send a check to MHD.  If you are paying by check, selecting this option will create an invoice in your account.  Print off this invoice and mail it along with a check made out to "Massachusetts History Day".  The check should have the student's name in the "Notes" section.  

You should give your check to your teacher who will mail it to the following address:

Leah Cardullo
South Shore History Day
Foxborough High School
120 South Street
Foxborough MA 02035

 

*If MHD registration fees are causing hardship for you and your family, we can help!  Email education@masshist.org and we will talk about how we can help with costs.

 

 

Welcome MHD Teachers!  Here you will find information on how to register for the contest, track your student's registrations, and retrieve student invoices if your school is paying for registration fees.  For information on the competition day itself, click on the "Contest" link above.  If you have questions about your project, check out the Mass History Day and National History Day websites for more information.  If you still have questions, email Leah Cardullo at mhdsouthshore@gmail.com for more information.

Interested in judging?  Sign up and indicate your preferences at our South Shore Judges Registration Page.  Teachers will receive 6 PDPs for judging exhibits, performances, and documentaries, and 10 PDPs for judging papers and websites (which require advanced preparation).  

Teacher Registration

Create an Account

In the box on the righthand side of the screen titled "Create an Account," fill in your name and email address and follow prompts to create a teacher account.  Even if you participated in a contest in a previous year, you still need to create a new account for this contest. 

IMPORTANTTeachers need to sign up before students so that students can register under their teacher's name.  This allows teachers to keep track of their students' registrations and, if the school is paying for registration fees, collect student invoices for a Payment Order (see below).

Select Your School

You will be prompted to select your school from a drop-down menu.  If you cannot find your school listed, please contact education@masshist.org and they will add your school to the website. 

Viewing Student Information

When logged in, teachers can click on the "My Students" tab at the top of the webpage.  This will take you to a list of the students who are linked to you in the system.  Note: A teacher’s student will only appear once the student has created their account.

By clicking on the student, teachers can choose to view and edit information, or to link/unlink the student to an entry.

Paying Student Registration Fees

If students are paying for their own registrations and are paying by check, they have been instructed to give their checks to you instead of mailing them individually. Checks should be made out to "Massachusetts History Day." The check should have the student's name in the "Notes" section. Please collect all checks and send them all together in one envelope to the address below.

If your school is paying for student registrations, you can do so through your teacher account.

  • Click on the "Store" tab.
  • Click on the "Students" tab, next to the "Order History" tab.
  • All of the students associated with your teacher account will appear on the list.  Check the box next to the student(s) for whom the teacher or school is paying.
  • Add fees to the cart and click the blue "Checkout and Pay" button
  • If the school is paying by check or Purchase Order, select "Generate Invoice." Confirm and print this invoice, and present it to the school to create a purchase order.

Checks should be made out to "Massachusetts History Day."  Mail this invoice along with the check to the following address:

Leah Cardullo
South Shore History Day
Foxborough High School
120 South Street
Foxborough MA 02035

Fee Assistance

If MHD registration fees or expenses are causing undue hardship for your school or any of your students, we can help!  Email education@masshist.org to discuss possibilities for MHD support.
